â€śTickets are not yet on sale for the fairtime concert, but many people have been asking who this yearâ€™s band would be,â€ť said Fairgrounds CEO Jim Tatum. â€śWe are so excited to bring back a classic rock concert and we hope everyone comes out to enjoy Blue Ă–yster Cult.â€ť
In 2001, a group of local Lone Pine residents got together to discuss how they could bring their community together. Rather than having a Cinco de Mayo celebration, they decided to expand the concept to hold it the week afterward to include everyone in the community, celebrate Motherâ€™s Day as well, and call it Fiesta de Lone Pine.
Nearly four years after the 55,000-acre Complex Fire of July 2007 nearly burnt the structure down and three years after heavy rainfall on the burnt areas sent a flood of mud and debris through the historic grounds, the Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery is not only recovered but newly expanded.
Friends of Mt. Whitney Hatchery are inviting the public to celebrate the opening of the new Wildlife Interpretive Center at the hatchery this Saturday.
The fun starts at 6 p.m. with dinner, live music by Sandy and Clay Anderson and cowboy poetry by Duane Rossi.
